Delightful and Delicious

Dined at Van Brugel's Friday evening. It is steps away from Bay Street so convenient to the center of Nassau. We chose to sit on the veranda. It was perfect- lots of space between tables and quiet - unlike most of the restaurants in Nassau that blast amplified music day and night. Our waiter... read more

We heard about a new event at Van Brugel's - a pop up all you can eat brunch so 5 of us decided to give it a try. The restaurant wasn't quite ready for us but we sat outside on the porch quietly recovering from the night before. The event was run by Lyndon - he happily served us great... More

a well-frequented and very well-known spot in Nassau where one can enjoy an open balcony and excellent food and drinks and where the owner is in charge of the kitchen.

Service and food were excellent. Wife's birthday celebrating with friends. Couldn't have been treated better and the food very good. Recommend for lunch or dinner.

The staff was friendly, well informed, easy to talk to, made a great meal experience. Try the Thai Beef, followed by the Strudel.

We stopped for lunch the second time this week. Wonderful food and wonderful service. Our waitress Pepsi was awesome and the chef Tanya checked on us twice. Wonderful place off the beaten path. Freddie was fun too.

We ate here a couple of years ago and it was excellent, so it was our first choice for a family dinner. It was still excellent, and we would return.

This very well maintained little gem was part of our food tour and even though we only had a taste we certainly liked what we found. We had a conch coconut curry chowder and it was excellent. The property is very well maintained which is not always the case in The Bahamas so it was refreshing. And it is always... More
